About EYES ON YOU (Blasphemy #3):

She wants to explore her true desires, and he wants to watch… When a sexy stranger asks Wolf Henrikson to rescue her from a bad date, he never expected to want the woman for himself. But their playful conversation turns into a scorching one-night stand that reveals the shy beauty gets off on the idea of being seen, even if she’s a little scared of it, too. And Wolf loves to watch.

In the wake of discovering her fiancé’s infidelity, florist Olivia Foster never expected to find someone who not only understood her wildest, darkest fantasies, but would bring them to life. As Wolf introduces her to his world at the play club, Blasphemy, Liv finds herself tempted to explore submission and exhibitionism with the hard-bodied Dom even as she’s scared to trust again.

But Wolf is a master of getting what he wants—and he’s got his eyes set on her…

My thoughts:

I don't know why, but I am shocked by how much I loved this book! I already knew that I was a fan of Laura Kaye from her Raven Rider's series, so it should not have come as a surprise that I would love her other works as well - but boy! From the first page to the last word, I was enthralled. I loved her characters from jump - Olivia and Wolf were the perfect couple and the set up of their meeting, the explosive chemistry between them, and just the utter sweetness of their connection was amazing. Yes it was insta-lust, but it was written in such a manner, with such intelligence and maturity that it felt a lot more credible than the trope feels in other books. Everything was executed so well: the settings, the dialogue, the characters, EVERYTHING! I'm beginning to think that it is imperative that  I not only devour all of Laura Kaye's work, but also acquire every single 1001 Dark Nights novella because I have yet to read one that was not stellar. I give Eyes On You 4.75 out of 5 wine glasses and it only lost a .25 because I want MORE of Wolf and Olivia! 


  

Excerpt: 

Oh, nope. Nopenopenope. A thousand, million times, nope.
She shoved up out of her chair, and the napkin tumbled from her lap to the floor.
As stunned as she was, she wasn’t sure which happened first—Jerry asking where she was going or Wolf appearing at her side.
“God, Liv. It really is you,” Wolf said. “I worried I’d never see you again.”
Liv blinked, swallowed, and played along as she stared up at that handsome Nordic face, all dark-blond and sharp-jawed good looks. “Wolf. Wow. I can’t believe it’s you.”
He stepped closer. “I see you’re in the middle of something here…”
“Yes, she is,” Jerry said. “If you’ll excuse us.”
Wolf ignored him. “…but after the way we last parted, I promised myself if I ever saw you again, I wasn’t going to let you get away twice.”
Liv was nearly breathless. Was he role-playing or talking about their brief encounter? Either way, her response was the same. “I don’t want you to let me get away.”
She felt out of her element, outside the bounds of propriety, out of control. She had no idea what she was doing here, what she was maybe getting into with this man who was, except for an intense five-minute conversation, a total stranger. She had no idea…except that her head said How could it be worse than my date? And her instincts said Go with Wolf, go with Wolf, go with Wolf. And her body said And climb him while you’re at it.
“Damn, I hoped you’d say that,” Wolf said, green eyes flashing. And then he took her into his arms and kissed her. Right there. In the middle of the bar of a fancy steakhouse. In front of    
Jerry, who was babbling in outrage that Liv couldn’t hear.
Because Wolf dominated every other sense. His hard chest crushing her breasts and his big hands cupping her jaw and sliding into her hair. His cool tongue licking across her lips. His shower-clean scent adding to the Prosecco to make her head swim. Liv stood frozen and still for long seconds, not because she didn’t like the kiss, but because she did. Oh, man, she really freaking did.
